Portrait of a Lady
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1585
Pulzone, Scipione

The overall composition conforms to the type of portrait prevailing in Europe in the second half of the 16th century. The arrangement of the figure, slightly turned to the left in order to avoid a rigid frontality; the strong lighting that models the face and hands; the way in which the hands are arranged; and the inclusion of a curtain as a decorative element were all formulas created in the mid-

Saint Clement, Pope
Oil on panel. 1540 - 1545
Correa de Vivar, Juan

The figure has been identified as Saint Clement, a pope and a martyr from the 1st century (92–101). Originally Jewish, Saint Peter converted him to Christianity. According to tradition, he became a martyr by being thrown into the Black Sea with an anchor around his neck. In 867, Saints Cyril and Methodius transferred his remains to Rome and in so doing catalysed his devotional following. He is alw

The vessel, similar to O44, is formed by three fragments of agate and five enamelled gold mounts. The body is an ancient piece of stone with a broad gold mount on the edge decorated with an enamelled pattern of white and black foliage linked by festoons of blue ribbons.

This vessel in the form of an urn, recently attributed by Arbeteta to Tortorino’s workshop, is a piece of special interest owing to the beauty of its carving and the delicacy of some of its mounts, which were added to it in Paris nearly a century after it was made. They are of enamelled gold decorated with miniature scenes of the life of Moses and with rubies. The decoration is arranged from top t
